New ctcLink Student Financial Aid Portal
Starting with the 2020-21 academic year, Peninsula College transitioned to a new college-wide system called ctcLink. So what does that mean for you? It means you have a new app and online student center for efficient, anywhere access to PC services, including access to your financial aid info. You can register for classes, view financial aid eligibility and award details (if you have aid awarded), pay fees, view grades, apply for graduation, and much more.
Within the ctcLink Financial Aid tile you will be able to access your student financial aid file and any award info. The To-Do List tile will let you know if you have any documents required to be submitted or messages from the Financial Aid Office. Please respond promptly to any requests (made primarily via email) for information by the Financial Aid Office in order to avoid delays in processing your financial aid application (FAFSA or WASFA). (Award information from previous academic years will not be viewable in ctcLink, but will be available still in the old financial aid Portal.)
Activate your ctcLink Account
To activate your ctcLink account, go to https://gateway.ctclink.us and follow the steps in the account activation PDF for current students or for new students. These PDF guides are listed at the bottom of the page.
Remember to write down your ctcLink ID!
(Please note: If you already have a ctcLink ID number from another community or technical college within WA State, your account is already active and you will use the same ID at Peninsula College.)
ctcLink is the Washington Community and Technical College version of PeopleSoft, an enterprise software product line owned by Oracle. ctcLink covers every aspect of college operations, from student and course information to finance.
(Old) Student Financial Aid Portal
The "Old" Financial Aid Portal (or "Portal" for short) will give you access to financial aid application info that PC may have received prior to the 2020-21 academic year. This includes a list of missing requirements, your awards, forms and any special messages from the Financial Aid Office from previous academic years, ending with the 2019-20 academic year.
